Rhode Island Doesn’t Need A Dirty Energy Power Plant

The Invenergy corporation wants to build a dirty energy plant in Burrillville, Rhode Island. The proposed plant would burn outdated fossil fuels – natural gas and oil – which will increase emissions of the greenhouse gases that are damaging our climate.

CLF in Action

CLF has been fighting alongside Burrillville residents since the plant was first proposed in 2015. Since then, we’ve shown that New England doesn’t need the energy this dirty plant would produce and that the fracked gas it would burn would further damage our climate. What’s more, its construction would devastate a critical forest area. Then in June 2019, the state’s Energy Facility Siting Board denied Invenergy a key permit it needed to start construction. This was a victory for CLF, for the people of Burrillville, and for everyone in New England.
